Is it possible to make a text field show default values via LookUp from a sharepoint list?
The process has 2 stages:
1) once when the user makes the request
2) the approver makes changes to the form
The Currency DropDown option is a choice and has pre-defined currencies
The list below (PlanRates) is the sharepoint custom list:
I have also added a Calculated Field and connected to the Rate field.
Now at least I have the lookup() function within the calculated field.
It is just a matter of figuring out how to nest the lookup() to the custom list called PlanRates
How do I nest the look(up) to the PlanRates so that
it checks which currency is chosen via the dropdown list and then shows the relevant Value ?
I have a feeling that the currency dropdown also needs to lookup to the custom list PlanRates.
Please suggest and advise .... thanks
Solved! Go to Solution.
I had to create a LookUp Drowp-Down list to link it with the PlanList.
Then based on the selected choice, the Value was showing up.
I also forgot to select the drop down name from the "named controls"
Although, one thing I am puzzled!
what does the "ID" represent?!
Does it filter it from the ID value which is created with each list in sharepoint?
When I replace the ID with "Currency" (refer back to my pictures above) then it won't show the "Value"
why is that?
